OT Corner: Get Ready for National School Backpack Awareness Day – October 27, 2021
Join AOTA and occupational therapy practitioners, educators, and students across the country as we help others Live Life To Its Fullest by avoiding the pain and injury that can come from heavy backpacks and bags. Students, parents, educators, school administrators, and community members will learn safety tips to stay protected from back pain throughout life.
You have the chance to help by organizing local events and educating people of all ages about proper bag usage. Teach others how to properly choose, pack, lift, and carry various types of bags—including backpacks, purses, briefcases, and suitcases. We celebrate American Occupational Therapy Association’s National School Backpack Awareness Day annually on the third Wednesday of each September.
